  1. Nicolas, Utgard, and Claudio - thank you so much for your kind words! 😃 Claudius - correct. I’ll try and post others under their respective sections when time permits. J-
  2. I collect Air Force ribbon bars. Here are some with Saxon decorations. The identified bars from top to bottom are: 1. Oberstleutnant Curt Treitschke 2. Oberstleutnant Rudolf Beltz 3. Generalleutnant Erwin von Romer 4. Oberst Claus Groth 6. Oberst Erich Poser 7. Generalmajor Wilhelm Merz 9. Generalmajor Hans von Weech 10. Major Willy Runge 12. Ministerialdirigent Hugo Geyer 13. Major Walther Stresemann J-
  3. Agreed. I don't pick these up either, likely for similar reasons. But this is a very nice one, Nicolas. Well done and great score to supplement your collection! 😃 J-
  4. I love it; such a unique piece. Would be happy to own that and I only collect longer Luftwaffe ribbon bars! Just goes to show you how much I love It. 😃 J-
  5. A very nice bar and probably unique, ID or not. Just a very interesting combination with some rare awards. Great pick up! J-
  6. Where it was worn on the tunic varied based on wearer preference when it comes to vertical positioning. While I’m not intimately familiar with these awards, the pins can’t all have been the same. Just because it doesn’t fit one maker of a particular badge doesn’t mean it wouldn’t fit another. J-
  7. Dear Claudio, Another stunning piece! You have such great taste, and a definite style in what you acquire. I could probably review a catalog and correctly guess your next piece! 😃 Congratulations, my friend. A beautiful bar on so many levels. Best, Jason
  8. Nicolas - too bad it’s not identifiable, but a very nice bar nonetheless! J-
  9. I found him on eBay and sent a message. Hopefully he’ll respond. Thanks so much for chiming in here. Unfortunately there were two other photos of this general that he sold, just last month! What a bummer. I have a grouping to this general which I’ve been able to rebuild over time. So finding additional photos like this is priceless. J-
  10. Thanks so much Matt & Claudio! I have seen the poor quality version along with his gravesite photo. But I did not see Matt’s reply until Saturday. I hope I did not miss any auction listing for that photo as that would have been perfect to buy. Although certainly possible. I couldn’t find any eBay listing, but the photo is watermarked with what appears to be the seller or owner’s user name. Does anyone recognize this handle, and/or do you know how I might track down this seller/owner? Best regards, Jason
  11. Hey J, Great thread, and thanks so much for posting and sharing these photos. This is a superb comparison, especially for someone like me who doesn’t really have any badges yet. But as a Air Force uniform collector, I will need them eventually for display. I love seeing the nuances of construction as the years and ensuing needs evolved. And I’m a little biased, but LW badges are the most fluid and have the most style, IMO. It’s nice to do these types of things on slower weekends. Probably something that’s been mulling around in your head for a while! =) J-
